  1. As we enter the final few weeks of 2019 can I just ask that you do your online shopping through easyfundraising as that will raise funds for our club: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ Let's work together on this. Thanks for your support!
  2. With the next 2 games being at home I realise that there might be some people who won't be able to make it to one or either given the time of year. If that is the case and you want to be included in the draw just PM me so we can get that sorted. Thanks for your support!
  3. Only 10 of these excellent Christmas gifts left: https://ptfc.co.uk/product/ties/
  4. With the calendar signing event now having been and gone you can still order a calendar online, buy one at Firhill from the office during the week or get one at either of the next 2 home games (definitely from the kiosk in the JH Stand). https://ptfc.co.uk/product/the-official-2020-calendar/
  5. Just a reminder with Christmas less than 3 weeks away to continue using easyfundraising for all of your online shopping. Also, remember to enter each day's draw in their advent calendar to give yourself and our cause a chance to win: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ Let's work together to raise as much as possible. Thanks for your support!
  6. 11 of these left: https://ptfc.co.uk/product/ties/
  7. If it is the Ian Wright I am thinking of he was in charge of Garthland Print who used to provide the programmes and 50/50 tickets for the club. A shareholder, long time fan and good guy to deal with (from my personal experience).
  8. Just posted: As previously announced, both Thistle for Ever and the PTFC Trust have been invited to be part of a Working Group to make recommendations to both the boards of Partick Thistle Football Club and Three Black Cats setting out how the club can move forward as a community-owned club. Acceptance of these recommendations would trigger the transfer of shares from Three Black Cats to the appropriate vehicle considered most appropriate for this purpose. A key part of this process will include engagement with Thistle fans on as wide a basis as possible so that the proposals can clearly be seen to have their approval. The members of the core Working Group are: Craig Dunn Paul Goodwin Pauline Graham Allan Heron Tom Hosie Russel McPhate Keith Rarity Gordon Shaw Elaine Sibbald Ian Wright This group is made up of fans associated with Thistle for Ever, PTFC Trust and others who have indicated an early interest in getting involved in this process. Please note that there are no Directors of the club included on the Working Group to avoid any conflict of interest as they will have a role in approving the recommendations arising. The initial meeting of the Working Group will take place this week where we will firm up on future activities (which will include opportunities for other fans to get involved). However, we do anticipate that we will be issuing a questionnaire for fans to complete, with the intention of having a public meeting in January which will both share the results from this along with a wider discussion of what community ownership will mean. A further announcement will be made as soon as possible after the meeting. Thank you to everyone who helped so far. Allan Heron on behalf of the Working Group #ThistleforEver
  9. The whole situation with the Jags Trust has been, in my opinion, very strange over recent years. The years play tricks on the memory but can you remind me Jim if the decision not to allow the Jags Trust rep a place on the Club Board was when you were on the Board or was it after you had left it?
  10. As we are now in Decemeber easyfundraising have started their Advent Calendar. When you log in you click on the appropriate day and are entered in that draw. Today is the opportunity to win a £250 donation to our cause and a £250 gift card for Argos: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ Thanks for your support!
  11. Having gone back and read the statements on the official website from when the takeover was announced the working group is being set up by the PTFC Trust and TfE. What the Jags Trust involvement is beyond them being able to offer their opinions as fans I don't know. Their Board were in support of the consortium very early on but they have not made any direct comment since. I did note though in the last programme they were singing the praises of Supporters Direct Scotland who believe in greater fan ownership.
  12. Thanks for the info. It is at times like this I am glad I am a civil servant (not at a Sir Humphrey level).
  13. Firstly I just want to thank everyone who has been using easyfundraising during the year. Secondly as we are now about to enter December just to ask you to continue your support and use easyfundraising for all of your online shopping so we can maximise the amount raised in 2019: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ Thanks again for your support!
  14. Stuart, what is the situation if an offer is made to buy the other shares but some people don't want to sell? Is making an offer considered sufficient?
  15. From TfE's Facebook page: We are now updating the database with all our new pledgers so our latest news will now be sent on Sunday.
